Hello loves...

I absolutely loved making today's card.  It's very cute, fun and flirty.  The colors I chose are my personal favorite, and using a simple sentiment like "HI", gives me the freedom to use this card for any occasion.

(click photos to enlarge) 

To the naked eye this card makes no sense.  How can there be a ray of sunlight shining on her if she's under a patch of clouds?  But to me it portrays HOPE.  There's a silver lining (bling) in every cloud and she's managing to stay happy in the midst of a possible storm.  No worries!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Some Odd Girl - Sketch Challenge
Catch The Bug - March Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

As always, the list of supplies will be below.
Thank you for taking time to check out my blog.  Talk to you soon.
